My wife and i are oap’s and getting a digital television was a bit of a challenge with todays ever advancing technology, do we need this or do we need that. Well we took the plunge and hey presto we came up with a winner with this telly, fast delivery from amazon. We opened the box and there it was a large black sqare thing with sockets for this and that, we assembled the stand onto the base of this black box carefully followed the instructions and wow what a picture quality and the sound was as good as it gets,i told my wife ‘look’ dear were in the 21st centry and well worth every penny, buy cheap you get cheap, the price was very realistic and the ease of use is very good, we are amazed at the picture quality when you play a dvd i think you call it near hd (so iv’e read), if you are getting on a bit and get a bit confused with tech stuff but one of these telly’s and you won’t go far wrong.
This is an excellent tv and the price is fantastici had shopped around and amazon was the cheapest by some way. The picture and clarity is excellent and the features and sockets on the tv are very generous. The menus are all easy to use and the remote is very smart (in black) with large numbered buttons. The tv has a lovely swivel stand and the toshiba badge can be set to glow or be turned off. The negative points for me (nit picking really) is you do not get a full instruction book, you have to download one online – they say its to save the rainforest, but i printed mine out and used a small tree for that. And the picture can be very dark (auto setting), so i have to have mine on the dynamic setting all the time. The resolution + feature makes the (already good) picture much sharper and super clear and is on a setting of 1 to 5, 3 is good but 5 is wow. But 5 can be too sharp in some cases. The first class delivery time was very quick, the expected delivery date said 22nd but was actually 20ththis tv runs at 1080p and watching hd programs is amazing – just make sure you invest in a hd signal (freesat or sky) and use a really good hdmi cable to really get the best out of this tv.
Great brand great tv but no more. Great great great tv excellent picture , i still use it even after 5 years and 9 monthsthough it has no new features as latest models- no other brand has natural colours like this toshibas have. But now you dont get toshibas equal to this. [posted on 13 october 2015 [purchased in dec 2009]. ]
Great tv, very good picture quality, this was a replacement for my previous toshiba that packed up after 3 months. Couple of points to note:* sound quality isn’t great, it’s adequate but seems a bit ‘tinny’ compared to the model it replaced* if you use the vga port, the maximum res you can get is 1360*768, some models will go higher. If you need it any higher you will have to use the hdmi port* picture quality in freeview is much better than my old model with the same media centre source. * hd looks fantastic, i use a freesat hd box and the footy looks great. Also i would like to mention amazon’s returns procedure, it is nothing short of superb, they collected the faulty one, and when the same model wasn’t available refunded me (inc postage and packing) and i ordered another and got it next day. If you have not used amazon before and are worried about buying a bulk item like this, fear not, the customer experience was superb (unlike dabs who are awful and should take a leaf out of amazon’s book)hope this helps.
An excellent buy for the money. Physical set up was easy – done on my own as my dad is disabled and had no problems even though instructions say it’s a two person job. Setup for viewing was even easier – self scan of both digital and analogue signals worked no problem and relatively quickly compared to other tv’s i’ve had. The recent digital re-tune was no problem either. Took just a few seconds to locate the option to re-tune the digital signal only and it worked just as well as the original set up. The main buttons on the remote control are of a good size so easier for my dad to operate even though his dexterity isn’t great due to his disability although a couple of buttons like the tv guide and info buttons are a little small. It must be noted that no hd signal is currently being used in this setup but the picture quality is excellent in standard def. With non of the colour blocking in the picture i’ve seen on similar priced tv’s. I think my dad’s hearing is going as he always has the sound rather high but this just shows the quality of the sound with no distortion at high volume even during high bass music.
Toshiba Regza 37RV635D 37-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview : I bought my toshiba rezga 1080p 37rv635db to replace my 24 inch sony crt-plus-digibox tv. Firstly, the toshiba weighs half as much as the crt tv. Secondly, what a tremendous improvement in the quality and resolution in the lcd picture, more than the difference between normal and hd tv i fancy. Secondly, almost every aspect of the toshiba i found excellent or helpful, such as the on- screen programme guide. Thirdly, i live in a fairly low-signal area: the toshiba digital channels receiver is substantially more sensitive than my two digiboxes. There are three normal main input facilities, plus four hdmi inputs, plus usb j-peg viewer, plus d-type three row 15 pin pc input socket. Normal inputs 1 & 2 are scart, where input 2 can be switched to an `s’ video 4 pin input plus 2 phono stereo sound sockets. Input 3 consists of 5 phono sockets, 3 for component video plus 2 for sound input. A cam module slot, an optical digital audio output socket, 3.
